Nice truck, just across the street from a favorite thrift store, around the corner from the mall which, in turn, is just across the street from the silos in the background.
Incredible skies these days. Sign for a 'Lost Farm' subdivision along Farm To Market Rd, better known, in our family, as Market The Farm Rd.
Another favorite truck.
Sun going down. Moon rising high.
The cashiers at the grocery store have one of the best views in town.
Driving home on our road. Deer in the neighbor's field.
Blue Moon chilling on ice and snow, waiting for a crafting night together with friends in my still-unfinished-but-functional-enough room above the shop. Same beautiful moon as the one earlier that day, pictured above. There wasn't even one stitch of knitting or anything else "accomplished" that night by the way. Hey, we did leave one beer for C.
Blue sock yarns currently in the line up. Some of these were supposed to be vacation knitting but, as you can see, I couldn't wait...you know, in avoidance of all the packing and preparing to leave that needs to be pulled off before we go. Who am I kidding? I spend more time fretting about what yarn to bring than what clothes to pack. How much room for yarn will I have? What if I run out of yarn before the end of the trip? Should I bring less yarn and plan on a more intricate project that will take more time? Or would I rather have more relaxed and mindless projects that knit up quickly and so will need more yarn? Maybe I should take a break from knitting and just bring books to read? Nah.
Just a couple of weeks ago C accused me, and rightfully so, of being in a bit of turquoise phase right now. It's a color that usually is well outside of my comfort zone, one that I don't typically find myself drawn towards. Well, I suppose then that there is no time like this blue/turquoise phase to finally knit with the yarn that came from Cassie last year in the Unloved Sock Yarn Swap. It is the Uptown Boot Sock pattern from the Winter 2003 issue of Interweave Knits magazine. The other sock is Fortissima Step-Aerobic-Wollness in colorway #8031 Jeans-Grau, bought off ebay quite some time ago. Like I said before, there's nothing like PS for working your way through the stash. I'm forcing myself to knit up the lesser favorite blues before letting myself at the preferred ones: the Regia Nation Stripe and the Socks that Rock Crazy Lace Agate, but only after the Meileinweit Safari.
